We'll Continue To Prioritize Development of Education Sector

“Education is not just a pillar in one of our THEMES agenda, it’s one of the dividends of democracy and one of the cardinal objectives of our administration. We see it as one of the tools that can end poverty in our system.

We are not paying lip service to education, we are taking it seriously. Education has continued to receive an increased budget in our administration. I am happy this Summit will be a platform where we can digest what we are presently doing”

– Babajide Sanwo-Olu – Executive Governor Of Lagos State

Int'l Education Day: Lagos State Prioritizes Education by Investing in People Through EKOEXCEL

The UN proclaimed 24th January as International Education Day in 2018 to celebrate education and reflect on the importance of learning for development and peace. Despite the global growth rate, some societies still sadly dismiss education as unnecessary. But the International Day of Education is a call to action. It notes that inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong opportunities for all will help countries achieve gender equality and break the cycle of poverty.

This is incredibly comforting as children and youth are out of school, with 771 million adults illiterate. To arrest the slide in the education sector and fulfill the promise of providing Lagosians with quality education, the Sanwo-Olu led government has focused on human capital development through strategic interventions, including the renowned EKOEXCEL, that has attracted global commendation. Thousands of government teachers and school leaders have been re-trained. They are now supported to teach digitally and scientifically across all the State’s public primary schools.

Governor Sanwo-Olu explained the huge investment this way “to change the learning outcomes from our schools. We believe a solid foundation for our children starts with qualitative primary education.”
